on our national defense in our federal budget, the e give let amount of dollars to service our debt. is my understanding correct? anyone disagree with that math? >> you're right, congressman. but if you have a bigging fight over the debt ceiling, that's going to push up interest rates and cause exactly the effect that you're worried about. >> so if we just put our head in the sand and say we're never going to worry about the debt ceiling, at what point do our creditors say, you know what? we're going to charge you a little more interest and that interest goes up to 6% on the $16 trillion? don't we just get to the same problem on a long-term approach by not dealing with the underlying -- >> congressman, i'm totally in favor of dealing with the budget. that's the point of the book we wrote called "white house burning," a dramatic enough title, i hope. >> okay. >> but the point is you need a balanced approach as was said at the beginning. >> mr. johnson, if i could -- it's my time. and i've heard the balanced approach now for a year and a half, and i heard it today from the panel. ther
, become me. method acting. so let's talk about the debt ceiling. >> no, because that's why i'm here. >> how do you adjust, professionally, how do you adjust to doing broadway movies and tv. are there differences in the type of acting that you try to do? >> you know, for me, it's always about the material. that's what attracts me. if it's on the written page and makes sense and i can relate to it, i want to do it. and, you know, and i think acting is acting. it's always about being truthful. so on the stage, it requires a different kind of energy and you're playing to a big house. in film, the camera can be right there. so it also gives you the option to really be more internal. but it's -- i really believe it all comes from the same place, which is, do you believe what i'm saying? >> i'm going to ask you another question, because, "argo," critically a success. award winning, obviously, for the golden globes. snubbed a bit by the academy. is there anything you want to get off your chest? >> you know, here's the deal, it was disappointing and kind of surprising, but really, the movie
that the substance matters here. the republicans knew they couldn't fight president obama on the debt ceiling. they should have just extended it sbeerly. i think there are some republicans who learned some lessons who broke with the party to vote with aid for the victims of hurricane sandy. so i think this sort of meeting is sort of the top line of people wanting to say it's just organization. but i think below that, there are republicans who know their problems run deeper. >> i don't doubt that, but i think that the bad signal is, for example, how are you going to say you're going to have change re-elect the same chairman in reince priebus, who we learned this week, had clint east wo east's empty chair in his office. to have that as some symbol that you want to recognize other than if you use an example to show how you lost an election, how dumb we could be. i mean, what -- can you re-e lek elect this guy's chair? >> look, we are in a two-party system. but the parties recon fizz your themselves. so, for example, there was ultimately a moment when the party shifted and where those democrats h

the debt ceiling, which has the unfortunate downside that if you mess it up, the u.s. government defaults, and it's a financial catastrophe, this was a sign of maturity. i think on the republicans' part that let's make it about the budget. so the budget is now going to come to so-called continuing resolution. they're going to have to have a fight about a government shutdown. this is what they should be arguing about. what does the government spend money on? what should it spend money on? how much revenue should be coming in? let's make the argument about that, not about whether the government should default. >> you just -- >> -- i agree with him. >> no, i -- i just think everybody's too -- i mean the question i would ask austan i know we're going to break but i'd ask austan people are very bearish on growth. what if they're wrong and trend growth isn't 1.5 to 2, it's 2.5 to 3 or 3.5 to 4. what does that do to this discussion? >> thanks. we are -- >> i think people are going to be surprised. >> let's pick up on that note. richard bernstein, austan goolsbee are both with us for the rest of
